THE STORY OF FOOD

Explore the rich stories, symbolism, and traditions that come wrapped up in the food on our plates - food that not only feeds our bodies but also makes up our culture. In The Story of Food our millennia-old relationship with nearly 200 foods is sumptuously illustrated, with tales from all over the world - from nuts and seeds to noodles and meat.

The Story of Food tells the extraordinary stories behind the foods we eat; did you know that China is the largest producer of lettuce in the world? Or that garlic was eaten by Olympic athletes in Ancient Greece to enhance performance. In ancient Egypt it was fed to slaves to boost their health and stamina?

A true celebration of food in all its forms, this book explores the early efforts of humans in their quest for sustenance through the stories of individual foods. Covering all food types including nuts and grains, fruit and vegetables, meat and fish, and herbs and spices, this fascinating reference provides the facts on all aspects of a food's history. It explains how foods have become a part of our culture from their origins to how they are eaten and their place in world cuisine.

The Story of Food is a feast for the eyes, with stories that intrigue, surprise, and enthrall.

Australia in international politics

Author: Stewart Firth

The world changed for Australia after the terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001 and the Bali bombings of 2002. Security became the dominant theme of Australian foreign policy. Australian military forces remained in Afghanistan years later, opposing the terrorist threat of the Taliban, while hundreds of Australian troops and police worked with public servants to build the state in Asia-Pacific countries such as East Timor and Solomon Islands.
